Is there a way in the HTML or HTTP to instruct the browser (IE, Netscape, Firefox)
not to display the source so the users can not view the HTML code of the page by
just clicking View -> Source in the browser?

Hi.

Are you worried about others looking at your code? If yes, you can try to obfuscate it .

If the browser can see it, the end user can. So your only bet is obfuscation.

If you want to hide your JavaScript that is probably not even worth taking, you can use a packer http://dean.edwards.name/packer/ and select the shrink variables checkbox.
